I purchased this TV about 2 weeks ago from my local store. I did a lot of looking around before making my purchase. At my time of buying, this was the cheapest 42" TV that I could find that had more than one HDMI input and was what I considered a name brand (not a TCL or Insignia, etc) I have an Xbox so I had no need to pay extra for a smart TV. Picture: The picture is not the best that I've seen in a TV. That being said, with a few tweaks, it is has a crisp picture with HD programming. It is noticeably better than my 4 year old Samsung 32" 1080p TV that I was upgrading from. FIRST THING, turn off E saver. It will prevent you from getting the best possible picture. The TV comes with a picture wizard, which I made use of to help me get a better picture. You can also google what other people think the best settings are. I took a few of these and combined them with my picture wizard results to get me to where I am. Having the TV set at 16:9 actually cuts off a bit around the edge. I set it to Just Scan, and it's looking better. Note: I have not noticed any gaming lag when playing first person shooters. Sound: As stated elsewhere, not this TV's high point. That being said, it's really not terrible. To get it clear, I have auto volume on, clear voice off, sound mode = music, virtual surround on. If you like immersing yourself in a movie, you may want to have a separate audio system to run it through. Other: No swivel on the stand. Easy enough to move by yourself. I sit about 10 feet away from the screen on a couch in a living room/kitchen room that's about 12x18. I wouldn't have gone any smaller but I don't think I made a mistake not bumping up to a 47" set. Summary: - 2 HDMI slots are all I needed - Picture isn't the best, but with a little playing, it is better than most others in the price range - A worthwhile TV for the price

We wanted another TV for my baby daughter as the 55" Sony was being used by her big brother. I researched a lot of TV's and I'm shocked at how inexpensive TV's are now. My Sony costs me $2,800 4 years ago and now you can get a quality tv for $400. Anyhow, after a lot of research, I decided to get this LG. I was told by a few video "experts" that all the big brands including Sony and Samsung use LG panels in their tv's. So why not cut out the middleman and save some serious money? I chose this model over the 5200 as it has another HDMI connection and a built in HD receiver. This alone was worth the extra $20 between the 2 models. The Good: Incredible picture Good sound with the virtual surround sound Easy set up Multiple settings for movies, gameing, cartoons, and sports The Bad: The stand is a peice of junk - Actually, this is the only thing I don't like about the TV. All in all, for the price I paid for the TV, I feel I'm getting a lot for my money's worth.

I was shopping for a TV to replace my Sharp 42" LCD and knew LG had a good reputation, so I decided to get this model. Right out of the box the picture quality blew away the old Sharp. Since I don't use the built in speakers, I have a 5.1 surround sound set up consisting of Yamaha, Ascend Acoustics and Velodyne I can't comment on the sound of the TV itself. However upon initial setup it sounded very nice. To help tweak the picture I purchased a copy of the Disney WOW calibration disc. The picture now looks even better than before. To help some of you I will now add those settings to help you adjust the picture. Under the Cinema picture setting: Brightness: 52 Contrast: 85 Color: 55 Sharpness: 15 This is a guideline to help improve the overall picture quality and to give you a starting point to work from. Also scroll down to Expert and set the picture to the Cool setting. Overall I am very happy with this TV and for the price would recommend this for anyone looking at getting a new TV for either your living room or bedroom.

I am a big fan of LG LED TVs. I have a 55, a 47, a 42 smart TV and now this no frills 42 for a bedroom. This LG 42LN5300 has the same quality picture that I have on the other sets. I see no problem with image blur on fast moving scenes, even though this TV is a 60hz unit. Like all super thin flat panel TVs you will not get very good sound from the built in speakers. I recommend a surround system or sound bar with sub with any flat panel. One of the reasons I always chose LG is the fact the it is easy to use a Harmony Universal remote, because the direct input selections are available, which makes programming the remote easy and makes for a more reliable input change with the Harmony remote. The only real draw backs to this low end unit is the lack of VGA input for computer, only 2 HDMI inputs and like most new sets no Analog audio out, only Optical. But overall this is a great TV and well worth the low price.

Good TV with edge uniformity issue

About a month and 1/2 ago I purchased my LG 42LN5300 TV at the local Wal-Mart for a very reasonable price and I think it is high time I write a review on my new TV. The TV has very bright, vivid colors, good black levels, and good sound. However, on my particular TV the edges and corners of the screen experience color shift as the screen becomes dimmer. This is in no way due to the energy savings setting of the TV as I have it turned off. I do however realize that no line of TV's is perfect and understand that picture quality may vary. Overall I would recommend this product to a friend and will continue to purchase further products from LG and Wal-Mart in the future. Life is indeed good :).

Love my new LG HD 42" LED TV. I don't know why I waited so long to purchase one. I read a lot of reviews on this a few other brands. Kept going back to LG (Know they make good products) and quite a few commented on not such good sound quality. I can honestly say, I do not have a problem with the sound. There were a few scenes where it was rather dark, so not sure if filmed that way or not because not an issue on everything. The only problem I had was putting the TV in the stand. The stand is plastic and the first time it was very loose and quite wobbly. I took it apart and reinserted the screws and it was the same. I then took it apart and tried the screws into the stand by themselves hoping they would go down further to better stabilize the TV when on the stand. Still too loose. When the cable guy came for another problem, he was nice enough to rescrew the screws. Just needed a man's muscle, apparently I am not strong enough. Love, Love, Love watching HD.

I had a Sanyo 41" TV for four years. It never had as good of a picture as this LG. The picture, and sound are excellent. Plus, the price was great. I would recommend this TV to any one who is considering purchasing a new set.

I am very happy with this TV. It is my first flat screen, I love the size, just right for my living room. It has a lot of options to set the look of the picture just how you like it. I have not noticed any motion blur at 60hz. I have the sound set to "cinema", it sounds good plus I increased the bass level. The sound really depends on the channel. LG is a recommended brand from consumer reports.
